Pachyonychia congenita comprises a heterogeneous group of autosomal dominantly inherited conditions manifesting with characteristic nail thickening, palmoplantar keratoderma, follicular keratosis and oral manifestations like mucosal leukokeratosis. Less frequently epidermal cysts, hair-shaft abnormalities, natal teeth and laryngeal involvement may be seen. It is distributed almost evenly throughout the world affecting 1 in 100.000 populations. Here, we report a case of pachyonychia congenita type-1 with an added emphasis on dental findings in 45-year-old South Indian male patient.
